Do you have a 06-08 with stock foglamps?

I don't have this issue, but I'm wondering if your fog relays are "stuck". How good are you with electrical and multimeters? I would troubleshoot the relay either with multimeter or swapping it out.

You can try this:

I don't have the pin diagram for that relay, but generally speaking a relay works in this manner: It will have a couple of pins that sense when a switch has been engaged (such as turning on a switch on the dash), and that energizes (flips the internal switch), to allow a higher current flow through the other two pins of the relay to your fog switch.

It sounds complicated, but it really isn't.
